New S-Class is In­dia’s first BS-VI car!

Evo India - - BRIEFING -

ERCEDES-BENZ SUR­PRISED the na­tion by un­veil­ing the first ever BS VI ve­hi­cle in In­dia, man­ag­ing to do it a whop­ping two years ahead of the dead­line. The sil­ver lin­ing here is that the en­gine is BS VI com­pli­ant but is com­pat­i­ble to run on BS IV fuel (diesel, up to 50ppm) that is cur­rently sold at fuel sta­tions in the coun­try. The par­tic­u­late mat­ter (PM) limit and NOx emis­sion of BS VI en­gines has to be 82 per cent and 68 per cent lower, re­spec­tively than its BS IV coun­ter­parts. The new S-Class makes use of emis­sion con­trol tech re­sult­ing in re­duc­tion of harm­ful ex­haust gases. Merc also claims that even though the power out­put has gone up, the new car con­sumes up to six per cent less fuel. The new S-Class is due for launch at the Auto Expo in Fe­bru­ary.
